The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

What Up

Sorry for the light posting lately. I helped a friend move into town, I stayed a few nights at a place without Internet access, and I've been sort of shuffling around my priorities. To wit: by this weekend, I hope to have queried 20 agents about Travels With Ritalin, and have written a new chapter of my work-in-years-long progress, By Dick! Good for me, bad for the site. My schedule should normalize a little this week.

By the way, I'm going to The Moth on Tuesday---7:30 at The Nuyorican Cafe (236 3rd St. between Avenue B and C); $6 cover---and if past shows are anything to go by, I have better-than-average chance of being one of the ten storytellers randomly selected to perform. So why not come by? The theme this time around is "Teachers," so I imagine the stories will be pretty good.
